It’s Sew Grateful Week! First of all, a huge thanks to the lovely and amazing Debi (she truly is amazing) for hosting this! I’m so excited to see what everyone creates and gives away and reflects upon. I will be posting a reflecting post by the deadline of this Thursday, never fear, and I have to say in advance, I’m so grateful to so many people out there for being amazing resources for a new sewer like me. This is an amazing community of people creating marvelous things with their hands, and the support and encouragement and sheer knowledge and advice out floating around in the interweb never fails to amaze me. I wouldn’t be half the sewer I am today without all of these amazing people making things and sharing ideas, so thank you. I’m truly Sew Grateful! Read more about it here.
Now, enough jibber-jabber, on to the giveaway!
Sidenote, did anyone else watch Jabberjaw growing up? It was awesome. It had a shark. Who played the drums. How cool is that?
Yeah. It’s awesome. You know what else is awesome? This giveaway! And what am I giving away,you ask? It’s a trinity, or a triptych, or for those less dorky, it’s three things. Whatever, I like to get fancy with the verbage, sue me. Number one is this lovely pattern, Vintage Vogue 8728. This guy has been all over the internets since it’s release last year, and there are some lovely versions out there like this one by Mena or this one by Casey or this one by Erika! So here it is, yours for the taking:
Uncut, unused, and ready to go! And to pair with it, we have three yards of this coral pink silk:
Fun fact, this may or may not come with a dusting of small grey cat hairs. I will do my best to insure this is not so, but just giving you fair warning.
But say the 1940’s isn’t your style. Well, not to worry, because I’m also giving away this groovy pattern, Butterick 6258!
This one has in fact been cut, I believe, but I personally have never used it. And it’s not just a dress, but several whole outfits! What? Yes. You read that correctly.
So to recap, Vintage Vogue 8728, Butterick 6258 (with some CHARMING cover art, one might add) and three yards of silk to make a halter top, a dress, or whatever the hell else you are into! All for the low low price of free! Just leave a comment below letting me know what you would do with any of these items, or really what you are working on right now to make February a little more fun! Or tell me what you’re favorite childhood cartoon was. Obviously I enjoyed Jabberjaw. That’s just a give-in.
